The Auralex MudGuard v2 is a microphone isolation guard for recording vocals in the studio. Especially relevant when recording in bedrooms or other acoustically untreated rooms, the Auralex MudGuard v2 has been designed to eliminate the effect of sound reflections that occur off-axis to the microphone capsule. Easy to set up, and attaches to a sturdy microphone stand. You can also slide the microphone closer or further from the performer along the attachment rail. Auralex MudGuard v2 has a very solid external shell that minimises unwanted sound coming from the rear of the microphone.
Due to the popularity of our original MudGuard, Auralex is now introducing a redesigned and completely unique solution for microphone isolation in any environment. The MudGuard v2 uses a new, proprietary convex design which diverts internal shell reflections, offering unsurpassed performance among all microphone shields. Most flat and concave shields tend to focus energy toward the microphone causing unwanted coloration. The unique, patent pending, multi-radii convex shape of the MudGuard™ v2 is designed to direct any unwanted and off-axis acoustic energy away from the microphone. The non-perforated, solid back on the MudGuard v2 allows for maximum sound isolation by blocking reflected sound from the recording environment to the microphone. The included hardware allows the MudGuard v2 to easily mount to most microphone stands and allows the user the flexibility to adjust the microphone proximity.
